  1. I purchased two pouches from E-bay; one for my set of car keys and one for my wife's set.. I tested both pouches on receiving them. Keith has already pointed out with the keys in the pouches the car doors would not open. My wife forgot her keys were in the pouch in her handbag and after shopping tried to open the car. the car would not open. They are very effective. There are two sections in the pouch the keys must be in the "gold" cloth rear section. The front section "white" can be used for credit card.

  2. You need a live diagnostic scan done on the car. This will monitor everything like the throttle position sensors at the pedal and throttle body. Since the engine is Valvematic other components could be causing the problem. Check all the connections. I would either see an auto electrician, somebody with fairly good diagnostics or Toyota. I have my own diagnostics, because cars are getting complicated. It's handy to have one.

  3. Far more important is if you are unfortunate to be involved in a collision is how safe and strong your car is to withstand the impact. A collision can happen at any time no matter how safely you drive. Unfortunately I was involved in a collision in a Prius Gen 3 a few years ago. The car was recovered and repaired by Toyota. The cost of repair £10,000. There was a lot of damage to the car but nobody was injured thanks to the build of the Prius. The police who attended the collision stated that accidents are avoidable so these type of incidents are classed as collisions. No driver can state that they are never going to be in involved in a car crash. it does not matter if you are the best driver ever it can happen to you. I think that the Toyota safety Pack is one reason that Prius cars are so popular. With more Prius cars on the road then there will be more reports of collisions for the Prius cars.

  4. I've bought a pack of two, from Amazon. They are effective, so should do the job.

  5. PeteB I agree with your comment on spare wheel. I remarked on this in an early post test driving the Honda CR-V Hybrid , no spare wheel no way of buying, I mentioned this to the salesman his reply “ I can get you a spare wheel “ great driving around with a spare in the back 😱 . Another reason Toyota have a vast experience on Hybrid they must be the world leaders on this technology

  6. You could ask your garage to do a pre-mot/check, see what they think...but personally I would have replaced the bushes straight after the advisory..they aren't going to get any better after all and you could be looking at a fail this time As for anything else...who knows.?..parts wear out all the time. All you can do is check the obvious culprits like external lights, wipers, dash/warning lights, tyres et al.

  7. I will be looking at both the new Corolla TS & RAV4 when my car is in for it's next service in June - gives me something to do whilst I wait! 😛 Hopefully won't need to buy a new car for at least another 3 years (5+ would be better).

  8. That car was not designed to a performance hatch. When toyota was building it, it was meant to be a daily Point A to B car. Don't fiddle with that good reliable car, rather sell it and buy a car that is turbo charged from factory. Sent from my SM-A500F using Tapatalk

  9. Note - it is only models with keyless entry that are vulnerable to relays (because they are constantly scanning for the presence and distance of a key fob) Store your keys in a metal key locker overnight and/or in a 'faraday' pouch.

  10. Hi, enclosed copy of thread from one of the guys a while back which may be of help. Best wishes Paul How to reset your Auto electric window function. If, like me, you let the wife use your beloved Auris to pop down to the post box when the weather's freezing and, if like my wife yours decides to wind the window down to clear the ice off (?????)... and, if like mine, your window is frozen solid and it stops the auto function working and causes the auto light on the switch to flash, here's the procedure to reprogramme the auto wind unit. Simply turn the ignition on, wind the window all the way to the bottom and hold the switch down for at least ten seconds. Then wind it all the way back up again and hold the switch for another ten seconds and voila, the system's reset!

  11. According to Thatcham the new Corolla security is rated poor being susceptible to relay theft. The car industry says cars are more secure than ever yet thefts of modern vehicles is on the rise. Back to the discklock then!
